The main downside of merging it all at once through the soc tree
is that there may be patches that conflict with other work going on
in individual drivers.

What I'd suggest doing here is:

- have platform maintainers pick up patches for their drivers
  if that is their preference for any reason

- get a pull request from Uwe for the soc tree for anything that has
  not been picked up in one or two weeks from now
